Université de Montréal’s Laval simulation centre works to unclog emergency rooms – CBC

300 appointment slots available per week

Dec 18, 2022

Université de Montréal will be sharing its state-of-the-art simulation centre in Laval with the public to help cut down on wait times in emergency rooms.

As of Monday, a few hundred patients will stop by the campus each week to be treated by specialized nurse practitioners (SNP) and nurse clinicians under the watchful eye of nursing students.

The Laval SNP clinic is the fourth to open its doors since Health Minister Christian Dubé announced the creation of an emergency crisis unit in early November.

A first clinic opened its doors two weeks ago in the east end of Montreal with 300 time slots per week. Two other clinics in south-central Montreal will have around 100 weekly time slots.

To start, the Laval site will be open for appointments on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. There are 300 time slots per week planned.
